This study was conducted to adapt the COV19-QoL scale to Turkish culture and to examine its psychometric properties in individuals diagnosed with and without COVID-19. A total of 1069 people aged between 18 and 65 years participated in the study. The COV19-QoL(TR) scale has six items, and it was confirmed to be one-dimensional in the Turkish sample (participants diagnosed with and without COVID-19 and the general population). Participants' perceived quality of life and levels of anxiety and depression were the most affected areas and their physical and mental health levels were the least affected by the pandemic.
